    Guys heads up, got to nicely wake up to see my account go into the red. Pay close attention to how much you spent and how much is in your account. The hotel is adding charges and fees.

    February 27, 2013

    • Ryan J.

      I'll copy and paste this so I don't have to type it again: I'm one of the package holders. Here's an update on my hotel room. Sunday night I was told I would be charged for the room since the master account was thrown out. Monday morning I check out, I am told the bill was taken care of and was refused a receipt. Today, Wednesday, I notice the hotel bill is back on my account along with the $100 deposit.

      Gay, good thing the only thing I really spent on the hotel was the food.

    Hey guys this is Knuckleshy as you can tell from my icon and as you may have seen up on EQD this morning I am going to be checking in on you guys. Any word on the cost of everyone's charges for the hotel bills and possible dent we have made so far as far as the musicians who preformed out there and how much there is left so for the latter I kinda need to hear from TAPS if possible.

    M.A. Larson is raising money for regular people who got shafted for hotel bills that they already paid for. If you are one of these people and are facing financial troubles because of this, get a hold of M.A. Larson, or anyone that you think can get his attention.

      Deep respect for this man, helping out average fellow beings, men, women, and/or bronies who got screwed by this con. This man can have all my kudos, Internets, and whatever valued mental currency can be shared.

      February 26, 2013

  • Kage E.

    The con in itself was great. The organizers - not so much.

    I was so glad to have had the opportunity to attend my first MLP:FiM Convention! Even when it came to the whole system of rooming with Bronies I've either never or barely met before, it was such a nice and well-kept experience. Going to the convention really gave me so much more to appreciate about the people who work on the show (VA's and Staff), along with being a supportive fan. I'd never imagine I'd be given the opportunity to meet a big chunk of the cast, let alone mingle with them casually. Now regardless of the good things, I will admit there were some downfalls. The first to start off was the whole fire alarm incident, which ended up ending one of the VA panels early (I actually found it hilarious more than suck-ish). Then there was the Private Dinner where it was unorganized (no assigned seating as stated on the site). Then there was the reorganization on Sunday which threw quite a handful of things off (minus autographs).

    Other than that, I still say BEST CON EVER!

    February 26, 2013

    • FlyingTaco

      and the whole thing getting shut down early and all the bronies double charged for their rooms and none of the talents "Covered" rooms being paid for. lol

      February 26, 2013

    • DrSentenial

      I have been staying in close contact with my bank, and with all said and done I am only being charged the original amount promised for my room with the basic room deal that the convention offered.
      I obviously have no idea if this happened for everyone with single-person rooms, but things somehow either didn't reach this far down the totem pole or it was only the fully comped rooms and the super-big advertized limited # room deals, not the small basic room deals.

      February 26, 2013

  • Nick H.

    Well... that was quite an experience.

    1 · February 25, 2013

  • Greg D.

    With no con to compare it to, i cant say it was bad or good. I did have a good time with meeting several of you guys, and of course more bronies from other areas. Looking forward to more meets in the future, and definitely for EQLA. Hoping to put together a NLR soldier cosplay before then.

      It was the worst event I have ever been to. The community was it's only saving grace. All those poor people who are out hundreds and the ones who are our thousands from it make it the worst event ever.

    Through the chaos I had fun. Friday and Saturday were awesome. Sunday, not so much.

  • Garnika

    OH. MY. GOD. Was that, or was that not, THE Best Con EVAR?! It was so much fun and I met so many cool people and to top it all off it was organized and everything ran so smoothly! I especially enjoyed how absolutely none of the panels where interupted by alarms or anything like them! Also the lack of alcohol abuse was definitely a breath of fresh air, as opposed to the rest of the strip! Booze? Yucky! I can't WAIT to go again next year! <3

      I like the part about the extra security everywhere and the abundance of staff.

      February 25, 2013

  • BobboHead

    Beside the fact that Sunday was a total bomb, I actually had a fun time with meeting bronies I knew & new bronies, meeting VAs I haven't seen up until this weekend, and swagging it up at the vendor hall.

    It's a shame how things went, but at the end of it all, I believe the good outweighed the bad for this weekend.

    February 25, 2013

    • Tony T.

      I really didn't know what happend on Sunday. I was on the Vegas Strip and went to the Air Force before coming back and everything was shut down early I guess around 5 ish?

      February 25, 2013

    • Ryan J.

      It was all shut down at 3pm when the hotel found out the con couldn't afford the bill.

    Worst con I have ever been to in my life. There are only two reasons I didn't give it 0 stars and that's the fact the VAs' and the community was great.

  • Kage E.

    Umm, sudden problem, guys. It's likely my friend won't be going to Vegas and can't give me a ride to the con. Any open carpool spots? D:

    February 19, 2013

    • Christian D.

      Yes you are. I'll text you the info when I check in on Thursday.

      Okay, the number I usually give people is a soft-phone for work. Use (909)[masked] instead.

      February 21, 2013

  • Christian D.

    Alright everyone listen up.

    This is what I got going on. I got a villa on the strip and getting confirmation tonight and latest tomorrow. The rate I will charge everyone is $20 and the villa can hold up to 8 people. I have myself, Peter, Daniel, Hank, And Eric that were wanting a room. If anyone else wants in let me know. The villa is at The Polo Tower so it's about a 15 min walk or a 2 min drive there.

    For carpool this is what I know from all various sources XD
    Daniel ad I are working out were we will be taking a van, or if not ill be taking my truck there. Peter should go with Ryan because if I'm having to drive I have to drive a bit away to pick up Daniel. I'll confirm this with Ryan, and if we take the van we can take an additional 3 people.

Ill leave my car there then me, other Ryan, Hank, Peter, and Christian all go in Daniel's van. I believe everyone I listed said they're fine going Thursday to Monday.

But for now I have no place to stay so if someone has a spot for me to sleep somewhere that would be cool! If not, I will probably get my own and then let people get in on that.
